Think Computers, Carbide Series™ 400R Mid-Tower Case Review — "Since this was my first Corsair case I reviewed I really didn't know what to expect. For a company whose focus has been primarily memory in the past, they have made a great shift to the world of cases. I'm really impressed with this case and I really can't think of anything negative associated with it. ThinkComputers would like to award the Corsair Carbide 400R Mid Tower Case a 10 out of 10 score."
Hardware Secrets, Carbide Series™ 500R Mid-Tower Case Review — "The Corsair Carbide Series 500R is an upgraded version of the 400R. For between USD 30 and USD 40 more, you get a 200 mm side fan, a three-step fan speed controller, support for a 240 mm radiator, air filter on the top panel, hard drive bays in a two-cage configuration, and support for longer video cards if the hard drive cage is removed."
HardOCP, Professional Series™ HX1050 80 PLUS® Silver Certified 1050W PSU Review — "The Corsair HX1050 is the newest power supply from Corsair that is replacing an old standby from its early lineup and it largely is a capable replacement. The HX1050 features much improved DC Output Quality on the 12v rail compared to the older HX1000W and much improved efficiency across the board."
PC Perspective, Professional Series™ HX1050 80 PLUS® Silver Certified 1050W PSU Review — "The Corsair Professional Series HX1050 power supply delivers good efficiency with clean DC outputs and good voltage regulation. Under normal operating conditions the power supply is very quiet. The HX1050 comes with a good assortment of all-modular cables that can support the latest CPUs and multiple, high-end video cards along with active PFC, universal AC input and a 7-year warranty. Overall, the Corsair HX1050 is very good power supply in its price range."
Hardware Canucks, Hydro Series H80 CPU Cooler Review — "In every way imaginable the Corsair H80 deserves its "High Performance" moniker. No matter what the heat load this sumo sized – yet still only single bay form factor – all in one water cooling solution simply performed flawlessly. But then again, we expected nothing less from Corsair since through their partnership with CoolIT; they seem to have the design of closed loop water coolers down to a precise science. "
Guru 3D, Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler Review — "So if you are on the lookout for an easy to install, good looking and really nice performing product but don't want to spend heaps of dough on it, then most definitely be consider the Corsair H100 LCS kit. Whether you are a bit of a noise freak like I am or are on the lookout for a little more, the kit seems to offer it all and thus comes very much recommended."
Legit Reviews, Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler Review — "Like the H80, the H100 has the new higher CFM fans. Now, at full speed the fans are loud with the pair set on high; with a quad setup of these fans on high you will want ear plugs. On medium speed the fans are tolerable. On low the fans are nice. At idle they are very quiet, and with the system loaded up the fans are noticeable, but very livable. With the overall performance of the Corsair H100 I don't see a need for it set on anything above medium, low will suit the majority of users' needs very well.
In all of the testing the H100 beat the H80 setting for setting by at least a degree. On low is where the H100 shines above the H80. On the low setting the H100 beat the H80 by at least 3 degrees at stock, and 5 degrees at 4.0GHz. When compared to the air coolers the Corsair H100, as you would hope, bests all the air coolers I have in the current charts."
Vortez, Hydro Series H100 CPU Cooler Review — "When we look at the performance in more detail, the first thing to notice is that the Corsair H100 takes the top spot in our stock and overclocked charts. This is testament to Corsair's quality."
